When Ferrari makes a track special of its mid-engined V8 supercar, it doesn’t tend to get it wrong.
And so to the Ferrari 488 Pista, a car that, Ferrari says, has more motorsport in it than any of its other road cars.
It has the engine and aerodynamics from the Ferrari 488 Challenge car, but, at 661bhp, it not only makes 50bhp more than the regular 488 GTB and 20% more downforce, it’s also up to 90kg lighter thanks to a widespread adoption of carbon fibre.
Does this mean, though, that it’ll have the measure of other low-volume, race-inspired cars like the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and Lamborghini Huracan Performante? Join us as we find out whether this is another Ferrari special that ticks every gorgeous box it should.
